Sun Choi

As a visual artist, I have been interested in how to express the gap between art and reality in the context of contemporary art. Also, it was important for me to work understanding the context of adopting Western art convention and its grammar in Korea. Therefore, I have tried to make artworks that contain multiple interpretative layers of meaning, which provoke the sense of beautifulness and aversion at the same time and raise a question of illusion on canvas.
